Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. As always on Friday it is my goal to get through the stack of assignments turned in before noon on Thursday; I may be finishing up late on Friday, but I do hope to finish! You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
Week 8 Assignments. Because Week 8 is a Review Week, there is no new reading in Week 8. Instead, there are just some review activities, and I hope you will have fun with this change of pace for the middle of the semester!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Time. There's nothing due in this class today, but I thought this image might be good if you are feeling frazzled in your other classes: Whatever... I'm late anyway.
Happiness. The Internet has room for everyone: Make your weird light shine bright so the other weirdos know where to find you.
Words from India. This is one of my favorite Sanskrit words in English: MANTRA.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class: Ghost Tales of a Traveler in Japan. Japan is a country haunted by many ghosts, and as our fearless traveler goes from town to town, there is a ghost in every place, each with its own story to tell.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is The chariot will not move upon a single wheel (a proverb from India). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. This is from an ancient Indian collection of stories and proverbs called the Hitopadesha.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat wants to improve her performance: Feedback is helpful: don't fear it. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
